A search from the Internet RFC/STD/FYI/BCP Archives of the Internet FAQ Consortium using the keyword https gave (1999-03-17) hits in the following RFCs:

Connecting Over SSL (a chapter in Netscape Directory SDK 3.0 for C Programmer's Guide) refers to The SSL Protocol Version 3.0 which however says "Expires 9/96", obviously meaning 1996-09 (i.e. some day in September 1996).
